Dir. David Leitch
The first Deadpool movie came as a subversive revelation for the superhero genre - from the opening credits it brought a biting, self-referential humor into the mix, with a witty script and hilarious performances that combined the pop culture-obsessed raunchiness of Family Guy with hyper-violent, R-rated action previously unseen in any Marvel movie. Fox took a risk and it paid off big-time, meaning a sequel was inevitable. But while Deadpool 2 has its moments, it fails to recapture that same "lightning-in-a-bottle" punk rock energy as its predecessor.
